RANDOLPH, NJ - Pediatric Dental Associates of Randolph ( 390 Rt. 10 West - at the corner of Millbrook and Rt. 10 ) is hosting their third annual Mission Gratitude event designed to honor first responders- police, fire, rescue and military as well as service dogs.  This is a family-friendly event where children can climb into fire trucks, rescue vehicles and police cars and learn first hand from these first responders about the important work that they do. 

There will be a lot of seeing eye puppies, face painting, balloon sculptures, food, and a DJ.  There will be a short patriotic ceremony at 11 am with a Boy Scout flag raising and singing of the National Anthem by Randolph High School student Gabby Toledo and all attending first responders will be honored with a commemorative pin.  

In addition, the Morris County Park Police will be creating free child photo ID cards throughout the event for children attending.  Child ID cards are an invaluable tool to assist law enforcement in the event of a missing child.  Mission Gratitude is a free event and we welcome everyone to join us in celebrating the work of our first responders.  All first responders are invited to join as well.
